Awful “tackle” from Liverpool youth

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

Over to Belgium and a shocking "tackle" from on-loan Liverpool youngster Chris Mavinga while playing for Genk. The kung-fu kick left Standard Liege midfielder Mehdi Carcela unconscious with broken facial bones and missing teeth. Terrible and no laughing matter but what is interesting is the players’ reactions to a really serious injury. No waving of cards, faux outrage, or handbags with the opposition – just genuine fear and concern for their teammate.
